NuVasive, a medical device company of products relating to spinal surgery, has launched its LessRay software technology system for commercial sale in the United States. The LessRay system is designed to help address overexposure to radiation in hospital operating rooms (ORs), particularly in the case of minimally invasive spine surgery. The system is comprised of a proprietary software algorithm and hardware components.
The company states that LessRay’s proprietary image enhancement technology improves low-dose, low-radiation fluoroscopy (or x-ray) images to have similar diagnostic capabilities as conventional full-dose fluoroscopy images, thereby reducing radiation emission and exposure in the O.R while retaining the high resolution of a full radiation dose shot. Additionally, LessRay has other features to help reduce the number of fluoroscopic shots needed, thus decreasing the overall radiation even further.Back To Top
